We had a great time here. Randy and Suzie were so accommodating. The kids had so much fun splashing on the beach and jumping off the dock. Great place for families. Always improving. Highly recommend here.

From when we reserved the cottage #5 (4 bedroom) to when we arrived, the owners have changed. They already rushed to replace the fridge and stove before we got there. This is an old outdated cottage but functional. The new owners are fully aware of how outdated it is and are planning to replace the carpets, paint and put in new furniture. I also heard there maybe a recreation are put in on the grounds?

The location is great, close to Minden and Haliburton if you need food/supplies. They provide all the firewood and each cottage has its own camp fire area. This is a very quite resort and great for families. The beach area is very small and my kids ended up playing more on the beach volleyball court sand.Use of the canoes, paddle boats, and fishing rods were nice.

The staff here are amazing, especially Randy who never seems to stop working. Anything you needed, he was there to help.

Many of the pots did not have matching lids and the tv was an old non-flat screen (found out later they have a flat screen to replace it with). The other cottages seemed to have flat screens already in them. Considering the price of the rental compared to other resorts, it is a great value. The pictures on their website are are a decent representation of cottage #5.

The internet wifi was decent considering where you are.

We were there for a week and enjoyed our time.

My boyfriend and I recently spent a weekend in Halliburton to rent some ATVs with Back Country Tours. I spent a lot of time looking for affordable accommodation and that's when I came across the Loralea Country Inn Resort. We rented Cabin # 6. The cabin came equipped with a queen size bed, full bathroom, and a small kitchen & den. With the exception of the bathroom, everything is in one room, but it was the perfect size for us. Outside, we also had our own BBQ and outdoor fire pit. The resort grounds are also well equipped with tons of indoor and outdoor fire wood, as well as a variety of games (e.g., badminton, horseshoes, etc.).

Suzanne and her husband were very friendly and made us feel welcome right away. They were available for questions whenever we had them, and they even had a large collection of VHS tapes and DVDs that you could borrow.

Not only was the Country Inn Resort one of the most affordable places I found, it was also the closest to the location of Back Country Tours. It was only 10 minutes away! If I return to Halliburton in the future for whatever reason, I will definitely consider staying at the Loralea Country Inn Resort again.

Thanks for the excellent hospitality.

Room tip: Cabin # 6 was nice because it was further removed from the other cabins.

We spent 3 nights at Loralea for the Canadian Family Day long weekend in February, the cottage was right on the lake with a beautiful view. Heather and Bill were excellent hosts, the cottage was clean and all warmed up when we arrived and had everything we needed to have a wonderful long weekend, and they are pet friendly, so our boater collie was as welcome as we were!

Room tip: Cottage #7 is closest to the lake, but doesn't have an indoor wood fireplace, that being said, the electric fireplace is very nice!
